A planning application to build 135 new homes on a stretch of Chiswick High Road has been submitted.

Developers Lend Lease, who acquired the 69,000 sq ft site in March, have proposed affordable housing units to be built above the ground retail stores, re-cladding of Empire House, improving shop fronts and creating a safe pedestrian link between Chiswick Park station and Essex Place Square.

Over the past four months the people of Chiswick have been involved in consultations for the redevelopment of 408-430 Chiswick High Road, with more than 600 residents attending the public exhibitions in June and July.

As a result, the plans, designed by Assael Architecture, were in response to community feedback and comments.

It is hoped the mixed-use development proposals will revitalise this part of the high street, which links Hounslow and Hammersmith and Fulham boroughs.

Janet Kidner, Lend Lease’s Project Director, said: "We are grateful for the positive interactions we have received from the local community at our two public exhibitions.

"Our comprehensive proposal will incorporate high quality design and a sense of place by drawing on the area’s rich heritage and culture.”

The development of the 1.3 acre plot is between Chiswick High Road, Acton Lane and Essex Place, standing opposite Turnham Green, and includes vacant office tower Empire House and seven retail units.

The one, two and three bed apartments will be split with 64 homes built at Empire House, 50 apartments at Essex Place and 21 homes for Acton Lane.

Plans also include car parking and cycle spaces.
